Every volunteer is an all-star in our book. This event can’t happen without you!

We typically need at least 500 volunteers annually to make the Vermont 100 successful. So regardless of whether you chip in an hour, or are with us for the entire race weekend, you’re providing much needed support to the event.

Volunteers please download and read our Volunteer Handbook

Below is information about when we need volunteers, for what tasks, what you get in return, and how to get involved. Thank you!



  • Site Setup and Organization: 9am-5pm  

Thursday is spent setting up the race site for the entire event. This includes putting up signage along the roadway, marking out the sidewalk, and registration-related tasks such as setting up the registration tent, organizing gear for runner check-in, etc.

Friday the start/finish site is active with runners and riders checking in throughout the day. We need volunteers to help with registration, taking drop bags, checking in pacers, and working the merchandise table. There is some additional race-related tasks, such as filling water jugs and finalizing gear for aid stations that are also completed.

Saturday the fun begins. Runners and riders complete their journey throughout the VT100 course.  We mostly need volunteers to work the 20+ aid stations along the way, as well as driving the shuttle vans and working the finish line tent.

  • Awards and BBQ: 9am-2pm
  • Clean-up/tear-down: 8am-4pm

Sunday runners and riders are completing their trek, so there is still support needed along the course at aid stations, shuttle vans, and the finish line.  We also need volunteers to help with the tear-down and clean-up of the site and the VT100 gear.

Final break-down: 9am – 2pm

Monday features the least fun (but most needed) tasks. Please help us clean, organize , and prep all the gear used to go back to storage. Volunteer for this day and we’ll give up to 4 early entries into the 2024 Vermont 100 to the first 4 folks who volunteer for this (and who volunteer for the entire shift).

In order to maintain the safety of all runners, we especially need first aid and ham radio volunteers. If you’re interested in volunteering and have any first aid experience (are an EMT, nurse, or doctor), or have your Ham Radio license, please reach out to the Volunteer Coordinator to be connected with the first aid team or ham radio crews.


Everyone who volunteers a minimum of 5 hours receives:

  • A VT100 volunteer shirt (sign up early to ensure you get the proper size!)
  • A meal ticket to either the Friday night dinner or the Sunday breakdast.
  • The gratitude of the Race Committee and runners, who couldn’t do this without you.
  • A huge THANK YOU from Vermont Adaptive, who benefits from the proceeds of the VT100.
  • The opportunity to earn one of 4 early entries to the 2024 VT100 if you’re one of the first 4 folks to volunteer for the entire Monday shift.

Volunteer Coordinator


Carolyn started running when she was 5 years old, and she’s still at it today! In 2012 (as college sophomore), she and her father visited the VT100 to cheer on a few local runners (including the now-RD Amy!) and by next year she was out there volunteering and pacing (RD Amy). She took the reins as our Volunteer Coordinator in 2016 and has been managing the 500+ volunteers through the weekend since.

Get Involved


If you’re interested in volunteering, please use our signup form (link added when available). You can request a day/time/roll, or more broadly offer availability. Either way, we’ll be in touch with you after to sort out the details.
